    The first proper OLED TV to arrive on our test benches has not disappointed. It effortlessly lives up to the hype by instantly producing - at the first time of asking, let’s not forget - the finest all-round picture quality we’ve seen from any HD TV.

    Whichever way you look at it, LG's use of white OLED appears to have paid off and the manufacturer has been investing heavily in OLED panel production facilities. There's no question that OLED is the TV technology of the future...

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely amazing picture So crisp and the depth to the 2D picture is amazing with photos and still images really standing out of the panel. Sturdy base great design. The motion could be perfected but THX mode for TV/BD is really excellent. Also streamed iPlayer looks as good as broadcast quality HD. Up-processing of SD TV is very good on a 55inch screen. I have had to send back the first panel for repair as there was a yellow discolouration to the centre of the screen. LG were brilliant in getting this replaced for me within a week and it being delivered back 2 days before Christmas. Very happy with their customer service and repairs department and the screen is now perfect. I do not know of any better televisions available at the moment and OLED is clearly the future. Bought at 1700gbp ex display. 12 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Infinite picture The Lg 55EA980W is an elegant design and an amazing 1080p think you are looking at a 4k tv. The build quality is very good. All you need is great content from the web like Netflix and your away. 03 December 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Futuristic design & still nothing as good now. Beautiful TV a real centre piece in any room so slim and in my opinion this one is better than the new model albeit the new one is a looker as well. This is my forth LG set and have not been disappointed with any of them. 03 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Une image de rêve Ce téléviseur offre un contraste exceptionnel grâce à la technologie OLED. Les noirs sont absolus ce qui améliore la précision de l'image (plus excitant à regarder qu'un TV UHD 4k). La fluidité laisse transparaitre une image naturelle. Les formes curvées moins sensibles aux lumières incidentes contribuent à l'effet cinéma. Le pied transparent et son dos tout en carbone en font un TV vraiment technique et sexy. Les 12 Kg et la très faible consommation de ce modèle sont des plus. La qualité sonore est de meilleur niveau que sur la plupart des écrans plats. Ce téléviseur est mon choix printemps 2014 pour mes clients exigeants. 22 June 2014
